Bring ON the HOLIDAYS!

~Super hostess gift idea~


For your creative INSPIRATION, the lovely ladies of Just Us Girls
are tempting you with a super timely creation - Make a box, and
fill with coordinating cards! {What a LOVELY hostess gift idea!}

There's all kinds of tutorials out there, and certainly, if you're a
template junky - there's a million of 'em!!! If you've not challenged
yourself to work in 3D - THIS is a terrific place to start! Treat
yourself to a visit to the Just Us Girls headquarters, and then off
to the designers - we've got LOTS of ways to share the inspiration,
so I hope you'll give the girls some love! This is SUCH a great idea
and our DARLING, and AMAZING Andrea is our fine and fabby
hostess with the mostess! I hope you'll jump in and
PLAY ALONG with us! {!}


This is our last week to have the ever so talented, Kim O'Connell,
in da'HOUSE, so please, please check out her lovely work and
prepare to BE inspired: we SURE have enjoyed having her stunning
creations and sweet mojo with us, the month: THANKS, Kim!

I threw a BUNCH of lovely buttons on these lil' babies!
Which reminds me that THERE IS STILL TIME TO ENTER
the fun and inspiring LINKY party at Buttons Galore & More!
Just share a Christmas creation, embellished with a button, or
20! There's many chances to win and LOTS of adorable ideas
to check out - the linky is open until 11/30 so, so this is a great
combo project - CHECK IT OUT, babies!

Meanwhile, since it is the season, please know that
high on my gratitude list this Thanksgiving, is my never
ending joy that I receive from sharing this crafty space
